GeneCards Summary for ESRP2 Gene
ESRP2 (Epithelial Splicing Regulatory Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR2 and mRNA Capping. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is ESRP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ESRP2 Gene
mRNA splicing factor that regulates the formation of epithelial cell-specific isoforms. Specifically regulates the expression of FGFR2-IIIb, an epithelial cell-specific isoform of FGFR2. Also regulates the splicing of CD44, CTNND1, ENAH, 3 transcripts that undergo changes in splicing during the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Acts by directly binding specific sequences in mRNAs. Binds the GU-rich sequence motifs in the ISE/ISS-3, a cis-element regulatory region present in the mRNA of FGFR2.
